Rovers players and club staff will be joined by mini-mes for this weekend’s clash with Crewe Alexandra as we celebrate our annual Junior Takeover Day in association with LNER.
Young supporters applied for a variety of roles across the club, including first team manager and players, and were selected to assist on what is always a fun-filled and insightful day.
Manager Jack Clark and players Jacob and Joshua Nattris have already been put through their paces by the local media as they attended the pre-match press conference ahead of the Crewe game, where commentator Jackson Bevan and media manager Samuel Best also carried out press duties.
The day is proudly supported by our Diamond commercial partners LNER, who have provided goodie bags and prizes for the young participants.
Watch out for the youngsters as they shadow club staff on Saturday afternoon.
